Team Deans: Where does your passion for racing coming from?
Scott Riedner: My mom and dad took me to the races as a kid to watch a friend of theirs, Bill Retalik. I caught the bug then. As I grew older working on bicycles but cars was all I was interested in. We stopped going to the races in about 1972 then I and a buddy went to an Enduro race at Capital Super Speedway in the summer of 1984. I entered my first race Labor Day weekend of 1984 and I’ve had the addiction since.
Team Deans: What is your best memory growing up as a kid?
Scott Riedner: Spending tons of time with my mom and dad. We did everything together, and still do. They really made me what I am today, without them life would have really sucked.
Team Deans: When you aren’t at the shop or the track what are you typically doing?
Scott Riedner: Thinking about being at the shop or the track. Seriously, I love spending time with my Girlfriend Marie and all of our Grandkids.
Team Deans: How do you get your racing fix in during the off-season?
Scott Riedner: I build a lot of race cars for my competitors. That gives me extra money for my stuff and keeps racers coming to my place for some BS sessions. There have been a lot of stories told inside my shop.
Team Deans: If you never started racing what would you be doing on the weekends?
Scott Riedner: Probably counting my money. But because I race I don't have that problem.
Team Deans: What are you most excited about for the upcoming 2016 season?
Scott Riedner: A new division, That being a Sport Mod, and the chance to race against my Boy Brandon again. I also look forward to spending six months with my good friends at the track.
